Ok, here they are cooked! Was it worth all the effort you ask? No, it was not. Although every little thing my husband cooked with them made the dish absolutely fantastic. If it weren't for his efforts I probably would have cried about the results. You know, they really weren't bad at all, it's just that all I could taste was the spelt. I love spelt and the nutty flavour it has, but I don't love it in a pierogi. The filling was great but the pocket just overpowered it. Ah well, live and learn, that's 6 hours I'll never spend making homemade pierogies again.
My husband boiled them and then fried them. He then fried some chopped onions, garlic, pancetta, savoy cabbage and dill, making the most amazing and delicious side ever. I think I enjoyed that more than the pierogies. Serve with sour cream.
On a side note, at least the spelt cookies turned out very yummy!
